A user-friendly, multi-purpose breath sampling tool for drug testing and diagnostics. Breath Explor is a non-invasive and easy-to-use sampling device made in Sweden. Breath sampling is convenient for the donor; no need for syringes or intrusive supervision. With Breath Explor, sampling is so simple that a collecting officer can expect to collect ten Breath Explor samples or more per hour. To support the collection officer, we have developed a free instructive app. The samples are sent to our accredited partner laboratory for LC-MS/MS analysis. Breath Explor collects aerosol particles from the most distal parts of the lung through impaction. The samples can be analysed for the presence of drugs-of-abuse or clinical biomarkers. The device is intended for professional use in workplace drug testing, dependence clinics, clinical studies, and the monitoring of therapeutic drugs. The Breath Explor sampling device is patented in Sweden and the USA, and patent pending internationally.
